    Are there any side trips that can be taken from Vancouver? Is it feasible to go to Victoria from Vancouver or is it too far?

    It will take an all day trip to do Victoria from Vancouver unless you take a Helicopter or plane. There are lots of things to do in Vancouver proper. Stanley Park, Capillano suspension bridge, Chinese garden in Chinatown, just to name a few. I am sure the Vancouver residents form the board could add a lot to this list.

    You don't want to miss Granville island either. It's down by the water and I just love it there.

    How much time do you have in Vancouver?

    You can definitely see Victoria (and Butchart Gardens) on a one day tour. Go to GrayLIne Tours : http://www.grayline.ca and look up Vancouver to find tours. It's a really nice tour. YOu get two ferry rides, the garden and Victoria's beautiful harbour.

    If you want to get to a mountain, there's Whistler (world known) that is a great day trip as well - absolutely gorgeous there- or if that doesn't work - Grouse Mountain is about 15 minutes away from downtown - I believe short bus tours will go there and while you're in the area, you might want to visit the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

    I live in Vancouver so I hope this helps!

    Thanks for all the good info. Can anyone tell me how I would get to Granville Island and Stanley park via public transportation? We will be staying near Canada pier.

    Thank you!
